Second day of Dialysis School and making treats!

Today was our second day of school and I learned how to set up the dialysis machine to make it ready to use.  I didn’t do it perfect, but I did do it.  Hopefully, with practice I will get better at this.  I certainly don’t want to do anything to hurt my beautiful daughter!

IMG_0699 (1)When we got home, I made the dog treats that I had promised these two.  They were both very interested in what I was doing and ever so eager to taste test the final results.

Here is Miss Lily, who was very interested in the kitchen when I was cooking!IMG_0703 (4)Here is Mr. Pepe, who couldn’t be seen being excited about treats, that would not be manly enough for him.  He tried to show his disdain but gave it up when I offered him the treat.

IMG_0706 (3)I make these treats all the time for my two dogs and started making them for my daughter’s two also.  Anyway, here is the recipe in case anyone out there would like to try them.  My sister’s granddaughter even likes to eat them!

This started out as a recipe I found on Pinterest, but I have tweaked it to be more to my babies’ liking.  So now I can whip these beauties up in about 20 minutes and they will have treats for a couple of weeks!

Here are the ingredients I use:

  • 1 cup of Peanut ButterIMG_0702
  • 1 egg
  • about 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 cup of quick oats
  • some type of fruit–I use applesauce or baby food bananas
  • about 1-2 cups of flour–depends on how wet the other ingredients are

I usually mix the wet ingredients together then add the oats; lastly I add flour until it becomes stiff enough to handle without getting all over my hands.  Once I can mold the dough, I make small roIMG_0700und pieces and put them in the oven.

I cook them at 350 degrees F for about 5 minutes.  I make mine chewy instead of crunchy because Mr. Pepe has no teeth.  When I want them crispy, I bake them for 8-10 minutes.

Here are the finished treats cooling off.  Once they cool I will bag up enough for about a week and put the remaining in a bag to go into the refrigerator (they have no preservatives so they have a short shelf life).  That is never a problem as my dogs eat these up before we have any problems.  Hope you and your dogs enjoy them if you try these!
